Podium finish assured for Mohawk curling women

The Mohawk women’s team will win a medal at the Ontario Colleges Athletic Association Curling Championship in Lindsay. The question is which colour?

The Mountaineers actually lost both their games on day three Sunday, to Confederation and Algonquin, but after going 6-0 the first two days, they are in the semi final on Monday (Feb.21). Already assured of a bronze medal, the Karen Creighton skipped rink, with a win in the semi final, would advance to the gold medal game against Algonquin, which won the round robin portion of the event with an 8-0 record.

In other action, the men’s team, skipped by Matt Kimber, still had an outside chance of getting a medal, despite entering the day with a 1-4 record. That hope ended in the very first game of the day, when, with an open hit for victory over St. Clair, Kimber’s final rock picked and his rink lost by one. They went on to take their final two games, over Lindsay Fleming and Algonquin, to finish with a 3-5 mark. The Mohawk men were presented the Fair Play Award at the championship banquet on Sunday night.

The mixed team, skipped by Miranda Keenan, lost their only game Sunday to complete their play.
